TEREX-Demag has expanded the product range of its CC-cranes with the new 3,500 ton CC 8800 TWIN. Based on the 1,375 ton capacity CC 8800, the new CC800 Twin achieves its 3,500 ton capacity through its twin boom system design. The booms are freely mounted onto the crawler carrier in order to achieve full on-site mobility. The CC 8800 TWIN is fully maneuverable while carrying a load.
Even before its official market launch, the first CC 8800 Twin had already been sold to Al Jaber Heavy Lift & Transport in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates). Al Jaber Heavy Lift & Transport specializes in heavy crane and transport operations primarily in oil, gas and petrochemical sectors. The CC 8800 TWIN, scheduled to be delivered in 2007, will be used in the construction of large scale projects, especially erection of vessels, reactors and P.A.U.s.
With the transport width less than 11.5 feet, and individual components weighing less than 44 tons, the new CC 8800 Twin was designed for more economical transport. The hydraulically adjustable telescoping system for the counterweight carrier and tray allow for a shorter set up time, and the modular hook block design allows for assembly options ranging from 385 to 1,375 tons for each block. The crane features a video camera system and an onboard AC power generator.
